March 15, 2013  - By 0 Comments

ikeGPS, a maker of remote measurement and 3D modeling hardware and software solutions, has announced it has been shortlisted for the GE Australia & New Zealand Low Carbon Ecomagination Challenge. The challenge is an open call to businesses, entrepreneurs, innovators and students in Australia and New Zealand with breakthrough ideas for reducing our carbon footprint. Out of 191 entries, ikeGPS was selected to the shortlist of 35 finalists that will vie for five Innovation Awards of $100,000 and potential investment opportunities of up to $10 million from GE and its venture capital partners.

ikeGPS’s entry,  ikeGPS Augmented Reality Network Management Solution, uses ikeGPS technology to make distribution network assets more efficient by enabling field crews to see network database information and models overlaid on the real-world assets, in real-time. ikeGPS has developed an end-to-end solution for electric utilities that combines the ikeGPS device (integrating laser rangefinder and camera technologies) with software for measuring and modeling pole infrastructure.

“We are delighted to have been chosen by GE for the Ecomagination Challenge shortlist,” said Glenn Milnes, CEO of ikeGPS, headquartered in Wellington. “As a company, ikeGPS is committed to making a difference to reduce carbon emissions locally and globally. We are excited to be part of GE’s very important initiative.”
